NBA.Com [Raptors #11]
"Their defense provided a November flashback in a 130-115 loss in Indiana, but the Raptors have won seven of their last eight, shooting 51 percent in that stretch. With the teams behind them faltering, they have a strong hold on that fifth spot in the East."
ESPN [Raptors #8]
"Since that 146-115 humbling in Atlanta on Dec. 2 and the team meeting that followed, Toronto is 21-10. Which almost -- almost -- atones for the 130 points allowed to Indy after we moved the Raps all the way to No. 7."
SI.Com [Raptors #11]
"Chris Bosh gets the headlines, but you can't overlook Andrea Bargnani's impact this season. The Raptors' fourth-year center is averaging career highs in points (17.7), rebounds (6.2), field-goal percentage (47.8) and minutes (34.4)."
Alright folks, that's it from the GamePointBlog for today. Remember, make sure to occasionally look up so that your Professor thinks you're paying attention - if not to just notice the increase of Raptors apparel your classmates are sporting.
